MediVisuals®Powerful visual exhibit helps a CA law firm secure a $5.65 million verdict in a challenging, non-specific brain injury case

On April 18, 2019 city employees were hydro-jetting the city sewer lines 55-year-old Juan Rodriguez was driving on a public road when the jetter device popped an upstream manhole cover causing a rush of water to fly out from underground sending high pressure water into his eyes. As a result, Mr. Rodriguez suffered significant eye and brain traumas.

The Plaintiff contacted Taylor Ernst of Ernst Law Group in San Luis Obispo, CA to help with his claim against the city. While the initial medical findings were unspecified, Mr. Rodriguez’s condition was constant and significant with the prognosis on his vision being ‘cannot be repaired to normal vision’. However, his injuries evolved over time as is such the case with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Taylor knew this was going to be a difficult case due to the non-specific brain findings.

Despite the challenging factors, the Ernst Law Group worked hard to build a strong case for their client. The firm engaged with MediVisuals, Inc. to create illustrations that showed the injuries from white matter lesions visible on images from an MRI brain study completed in September 2021.

Believing the case was weak, opposing counsel offered $0 upfront. The jury disagreed, and Mr. Rodriguez was awarded $5.65 million dollar verdict.

‘Medivisuals recently provided us with illustrations that were crucial in helping us secure a verdict of 5.65 million dollars with the only finding being “white matter lesions” on a recent challenging, non-specific brain injury case. Their effective and powerful images were key in swaying the jury to this tremendous outcome – especially since opposing counsel offered $0.’
